Compression Transfer Molding


A modified form of compression molding, Compression Transfer Molding incorporates certain benefits of both the compression molding and injection molding worlds.

The difference between compression and compression transfer is that in compression molding the material is pre-measured and hand-loaded into the actual mold cavity before closing the press where as with compression transfer the mold is closed and the material is loaded into a central pot on the back side of the mold that connects to a runner system which feeds the mold cavity or cavities.

The benefits are that the material does not need to be measured as accurately, more cavities can be molded at a time and the "flash" or overflow of excess material is reduced. These factors directly translate into saving the customer money.

Most of our compression molding machines are capable of both compression and compression transfer molding and have been since 1943.
